Thank you very much for your continued support of the Love Live project! Superstar!!. It should be remembered that this new project is inspired by the Omotesando, Harajuku, and Aoyama areas in Tokyo. We would like to express our most sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused by so many people by the anxiety caused by our inability to control the situation regarding the establishment “Cafe Casa”, whose façade we used as inspiration in one of the project’s buildings.
We would also like to express our gratitude to “Cafe Casa”, the residents of the neighborhood, and everyone involved in “Love Live! Superstar”, and we apologize for the inconvenience we caused them. Consequently, we decided to change the design of the building that used the façade of “Cafe Casa”.
In this regard, it was found that some people made negative comments and criticisms of the employees of “Cafe Casa”, as well as distributing photographs and private information of their employees on social networks and comment forums. Do not carry out this type of action, which damages the reputation of the place, the dignity of people and may have legal consequences.
For all our followers, avoid taking actions that disturb public order in the surrounding areas or in the neighborhoods that inspire the project. Entering private property or taking photos of facilities, stores, or residents without explicit permission can cause problems. We appreciate your understanding.
After the inconvenience and violation of privacy from fans who were “excited” to explore the work’s inspirational space, the Love Live! Superstar!! decided to change the whole scenario.
The building the press release refers to is the cafeteria of the parents of Kanon Shibuya, one of the members of the new group Liella!
